The National Drug Control Strategy: 2000 Annual Report.
Office of National Drug Control Policy, Washington, DC.
This annual report documents the National Drug Control Strategy's progress and plans for the future, and summarizes the implementation of the Nation's 10-year counter-drug strategy. The National Drug Control Strategy takes a long-term, holistic view of the nation's drug problem and recognizes the devastating effect drug abuse has on the nation's public health and safety. The Strategy maintains that no single solution can suffice to deal with this multifaceted challenge. The Strategy focuses on prevention; treatment; research; law enforcement; protection of our borders; drug supply reduction; and international cooperation. It provides general guidance while identifying specific initiatives. Chapter 1 of the report summarizes the National Drug Control Strategy. Chapter 2 provides information on drug use and availability and their social consequences. This information is based on the most recent national, state, and local surveys, among other studies. Given that these data instruments sometimes cover different time frames, consistent comparisons of data over the same period are not always possible. The Data Appendix summarizes the instruments used to prepare this Annual Report and outlines steps being taken to improve the information that supports national drug policy. Chapter 3 outlines accomplishments of (and modifications to) prevention; treatment; law enforcement; interdiction; and international programs (including private-sector and governmental initiatives and cooperative efforts). Chapter 4 reviews the Administration's fiscal year 2001 drug control budget proposal. Chapter 5 summarizes the consultation process followed by the Office of National Drug Control Policy during 1999 in implementing the National Drug Control Strategy. (GCP)
